No, the checkbox should not be removed. According to CZ rules, even if one sentence is from WP the checkbox should be checked. Yi Zhe Wu 12:43, 13 June 2007 (CDT)


Had I not moved from Newark as a boy, I would have gone to Weequahic High School, whose cheers include "We're from Weequahic, stand up and challah!"

I must say I've never encountered it with raisins. Also, there is cultural change -- I bake a challah-based bread myself, although rarely braiding it but just making it as a loaf -- and often find a little milk helps, and most of the recipes I know call for butter although I often substitute corn oil. If the intention is to make it non-dairy, most of the traditional recipes I know would fail on the butter.

Bagels, while perhaps not strictly bread, are a [w]hole other area of traditional and religious controversy. One of my friends' fathers, in Newark, had a bagel factory. They never called it a bakery. Plain, egg, onion, poppyseed, sesame...yes. Raisin was very daring. The range of bagels in most markets today may be a mark of the coming Apocalypse, or maybe a variant of the Tower of Babel. To add insult to injury, if you go to Israel and ask for a bagel, without qualifying it as "American bagel", you will get a bialy. Howard C. Berkowitz 17:21, 26 February 2009 (UTC)
